Cornersmith in real time

So on my quest to visit as many cafes and bakeries that are part of the Sydney honey scene, I visited the Cornersmith Picklery, home of Cornersmith’s urban hives.

Immediately greeted by three friendly faces, this quaint little store, that seems to double as a working kitchen, has a great homey vibe. They sell homemade preserves, condiments, pickles, and of course honey, with quite a large selection available. I can only attest to the honey, as being a relatively poor student, homemade, boutique, pickled vegetables don’t quite fit into my budget, but it is indeed fantastic. I’m not going to go into a whole ‘wine tasting-esque’ rant, but it is really tasty, and has quite a cool texture and flavour. Surprisingly different to store bought honey.

Just getting to chatting with a few of the helpful people there, it was clear that these guys are the real deal and were happy to answer any probing questions about the little bee operation that I had.

So if you feel even the slightest desire to get some nice pickled veg, or homemade condiments why not support a small Sydney business. They’re nice people.
